That being said, I am in awe of those under 2 hours finishers! You all rock!
This taste did not give me the bug to complete a full marathon. Yesterday, I was quite happy at the 7 mile split to be going left with the Half Marathon runners and let the Full runners go right. While I love the preparation, the race itself and the bit of competition I’m just thrilled with this goal of 13.1.
I have done Sprint Triathalons and thought yesterday’s race was much harder for me than the swim, bike and run race. Mile 12 was a struggle and seemed to go on FOREVER for me!
All that being said, I will admit that I’m a planner and thrive on having something to “go for”. As we were leaving the race, I asked a couple of my friends, “Well, what’s next? What’s the next goal?” I thought they were both going to throw me in the street! And they were right, we should just enjoy the moment and appreciate that accomplishment . . . at least for the day.
Do you like to have a plan? Or am I just really annoying?
Have you done your pushups? We are at at 36! Keep it up – you’re doing great!
